And now for my project....
I created a mixed media canvas, using stamps from Be Inspired. I started by adhering torn papers to the background using Claudine Hellmuth Gel Medium. I then dry brushed it with gesso and added pink acrylic paint in random spots, removing some with a baby wipe. Then I brushed white acrylic paint onto bubble wrap and stamped it in places. Several other stamps were used to add depth to the background. Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste was used with a Crafter's Workshop Art Is stencil to add the words to the top and bottom of the canvas.
Julie Nutting's Mindy Prima Doll stamp was stamped on watercolor paper and then colored with Prismacolor Watercolor pencils. She was then stamped with a text stamp (this is different for me...I usually stamp them on old book paper, but I wanted a little different look for this one :) Tulle was added for her skirt. She was popped up with foam tape and then outlined with a charcoal pencil to give her some definition. The flowers are mostly from The Paper Studio. Copper wire was twisted to add among the blooms and vellum was cut with Memory Box Floral Vines and Beach Sprigs and tucked in as well.
The wooden banners are from Jillybean Soup. I taped off the sentiment (my favorite!!) and stamped the lines on the banners. They were then embossed with gold embossing powder.
A Prima Junkyard Findings Small Typo Bulb was added to the bottom corner. The silver corner piece is from Recollections.
The butterflies are Memory Box dies and they were coated with Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating. The banner is a Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Banner. Be Fearless is also from Be Inspired. The gems are Prima Say It In Crystals.
